The Results of Georgia Farming.
One hand might, under favora
blo circumstances, cuftivate fiftQen
acres in corn, ton acres in wheat,
and ten acres in cotton. Those aro
the staple crops of the Stato. On
this fifteen acres of corn he will
make on an average ton bushels
per acre, which is equal to 160
bushels of corn, which he will
havo to sell at fifty cents per bu
shel, which is equal in amount to
seventy-five dollars.
On his ton acros in wheat he will
make on an average six bushels
per acre, which is equal to sixty
bushels of wheat-sixty bushels of
wheat at 75 cents per bushel, $46.
On his ten acres of cotton ho
will got 800 lbs. por acre which ho
can sell at2k conts per lb.-300 or
cotton at 2j cents per lb. $7.50 por
acre, $75. We might add ton acres
to plant in oats, which will on an
average yield sonio six to ton bu
slols per acre, say about 40 conts
per bushel, $32. Total $227.00.
Said hand will cost you $8 per
month, and it will take at least ton
months to cultivate said crop and
gather it, which is equal to $80.
Board for said hand at $6 per
month for ten months, $60. Other
expenses such as cost of kooping
one mule, which will take at least
fifty bushels of corn at 50 cents
per bushol, $25. Ono ton of gua
no at $25 per ton, $25. Ono -wa
gon and farm tools, all told, $25
por year, $25. Doctor's bills, $5
per year. Total $2.20.
You soo by deducting the ox
penses from the gross earnings,
you havo $7 with which to provido
your next year's necessarios, such
as food and clothing for tho aver
age family (which is five in hwm
bor.) Is not that a snug lithe
sum of money with which to pro
vido all tho necessaries for a fami
ly twelve months? Any person
knows that such a thing is impos
Bible. We have left out of the
above consideration the schooling
of the children, and preparing hE
family to go to church, paying thE
preacher, &c. That such condi.
tions have obtained, all admit, and
somebody is responsible for said
conditions, the question arises who
is it? Is it the farmers? We an
swor no I Is it tho allianco? We
answor no I Is it tho Knights or
the Grange, or tho laboring people
of the cities? Wo answer no 1 Is
it the failure in old mothor earth
to produce abundant crops? We
answer no I Is it over-prodnction
that causes us to be without b)road
to eat and clothes to wear? If so,
we have the remedy simple and
complete. Lot us consume all we
make, and have a good time. It is
not that, nor none of the above
mentioned causes. It is the ad
verse legislation on the money
question for the last 25 yeairs.
1st. Camne the resumption act,
cutting off ono-half of our money
supply-theni followed the funding
act, making us pay currency con*
tracts in gold, after they had burn
ed up one-half of our greenbacks
and changed our currency con
tracts, that wore not costing us oue
cent, into gold interest boaring
bonds. They were still dissatis.
fled. They had cut off half our
currency money, now they make a
successful stroke at the metalic
money, knocking down one-half ol
it at one stroke by act of '78. Wi
partially recovered from the effoct
of '73 by acts of 1878 and 1890, but
we laboring people seem to b)e dos
tinmod on the silver sub)joct, for na
sooner had Grover Cleveland gol

RepuiiicanJ and Demnocratic par
ties backed by the money powi
of New York that has caused al]
this suffering and distress in the
United States. And now in con.
clusion, mark the prediction.
Th le farming, laboring, and pro

All these and maniy more

the basis of arguments to show
that the great number of dis
contented people that to-day de

are in error and that they
should stop talking politics,

The chief business of our
